System information
X:Y Coordinates 1284.28 : -178.30 [e]

Interstellar Expeditions Base #6 is an Interstellar Expeditions operations and supply base located in the spinward Deep Periphery.[1]

System Description[edit]

Interstellar Expeditions Base #6 is located in the spinward region of the Deep Periphery, approximately 120 light years away from the Drachenfeld system. Little is known about Interstellar Expeditions Base #6, although it was one of three IE bases considered significant enough in 3095 to be recorded on maps released publicly by the company[1]

Political Affiliation[edit]


Interstellar Expeditions Base #6 was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Players 3: Interstellar Expeditions. Other than the astrogeographical location of the outpost, no information was provided in the system; in the absence of further information on the Deep Periphery no further detail is likely to be available, although the numerical designation suggests that Interstellar Expeditions Base #6 was either the sixth Deep Periphery supply and operations base to have been established by Interstellar Expeditions, or number six of at least twenty-two such facilities to be operational in 3095.
